God's Dream for Global Justice Often this world seems like a nightmare. Human trafficking, young girls trapped in brothels, child soldiers forced to become killers, unchecked plagues and diseases, economic injustice and the oppression of the poor. Millions around the world are trapped in this nightmare, and we may feel helpless to do anything about it. But God has a dream. York Moore paints a vivid picture of how the dream of God is breaking into history to make all things new. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God is bringing an end to the world's nightmare of sin and death. Scripture's vision of Jesus' end-time work shows how the wrongs will be made right, and God's just judgment is good news for the world. Unpacking how the Bible describes the last things, Moore shows how we can partner with God as he brings his dream to reality. Every time a well is dug for a community, food is provided for the hungry or sex traffickers are brought to justice, the dream begins to take hold. This is no mere wishful thinking. The dream of God is more real than your dreams could ever imagine. It is what we were created for. So wake up from the nightmare and join in what God is doing in the world. And flourish as your own dreams are transformed by God's dream for all creation.
"R. York Moore lays out a compelling vision of what it can mean to seek God's will to 'be done on earth as it is in heaven.' God's heart for the poor, the marginalized and the oppressed cannot be denied. His cry for justice rings out loud and clear throughout the Scriptures. In York's words, 'The dream of God includes us--our efforts, our passions and our risks--to establish his dream where it is not.' I'm excited to see authors like York boldly be a voice for the little ones Jesus cares so deeply about!"--Dr. Wess Stafford, president and CEO, Compassion International
"The God of the Bible reveals himself both as the God of justification and of justice. In this book, York Moore beautifully describes how God sovereignly and graciously demonstrates his concern for the eternal and the temporal. Sometimes evangelicals have been guilty of emphasising one without the other, but in this book the two are beautifully brought together in a fitting articulation of Christ's lordship over the here and now and the eternal."--Lindsay Brown, international director, Lausanne Movement for World Evangelization
